What is the outcome for low-lying placenta?
Most women who are diagnosed with a low-lying placenta early in pregnancy will not develop problems later in the pregnancy, as their placenta will move up higher into the uterus and away from the cervix. Some women whose low-lying placenta persists into their third trimester will go on to a preterm delivery.
